C# developer by trade - Gamer by passion...

On the PC I play Action RPG's (just give me D3 already!), Strategy and Hack & Slash games (just give me D3 already!)

Away from the computer I love to play board and card games with friends and family.

I've also dabbled in quite a few CCG's. My personal favorite was EVE: The Second Genesis - which I've followed from it's early beginnings to it's bitter end...

comment How can I get my heavy card stock game board to lie flat?
Something along the lines of "Board doesn't lie flat. What to do?"

I disagree that this is a duplicate. While there may be similar solutions, it definitely is a different problem... (A more descriptive title wouldn't hurt though)

comment What are good strategies involving Remodel?
I've never found Remodel to be very helpful, but apparently there are strategies for it. I'm gonna have to try it some time...

comment What are some alternatives to using dice in Settlers of Catan?
I really like this idea! I'm gonna propose this the next time we play the game.

comment Interesting non-zero-sum games
Well you could easily play a Settlers Tournament and instead of giving fixed points for 1st, 2nd etc place equate a player's tournament points to the sum of all his victory points.

comment Restoring worn-out deck of cards.
Yes. They are gonna get thicker but that's the price you pay. You can still work around that by not using the inlay and storing them directly in the box with elastic bands. Or if you have the time resleeve & unsleeve before & after games...

comment Breaking roads in Settlers of Catan
Absolutely correct. The presence of an other player's road does not prevent you from build a settlement there...

comment Restoring worn-out deck of cards.
Aside from laminating your cards, card sleeves are your best bet. If the sleeves are rigid enough they also make it a lot easier to shuffle the cards. You can simply split the deck and push the two stacks into each other.
